The US Open

I didn’t bother watching the US Open, because our hero, Rory McIlroy was so dominating this weekend, so destroying the entire field that there was absolutely no suspense.

Good for him. We at BSP think McIlroy is the greatest. Why? Because he, at 22 did at the Masters what everyone who has ever played golf has done. He melted down; suffered a warp core breach. He answered the bell and all the idiotic questions from the sports media. McIlroy made people forget about that self-immolation and now has his first major win. He also has us thinking about what would things look like if he HAD won the Masters. Talk about him being the next great thing coming along would have inevitably arisen.

It still might. Tiger appears close to done. Mikkelson appears old. The opening is there.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.

    What a ridiculous weekend we saw from Rory McIlroy. I know Congressional was easy but man he just blew the field away. It was quite a sight to see and it is great for golf. We have been waiting so long for someone to step up and after the Masters I honestly didn’t think Rory would be the guy either. This wasn’t your run of the mill major win either. It shows I think that he is just at a different level than the so-called up and coming “stars” that have come and gone over the past decade. It will be interesting to see how he comes out for the upcoming majors. I know I’ll be tuning in.
